When we came there to women went all crazy on other guests because they left there bag there a little longer after out checking time. we had to pay immediately so by then we couldn't go back anymore. After this she could only speak about what happened, like if we even cared cause she was the one who was rude.... More

I think those people who are saying that this place is not that bad have not truly experienced the horror that the proprietors are. This is as of April 2014 and I am saying with great emphasis that the lady who runs the place is NOT just straightforward, she is rude, and irresponsible and verging on insane (and i'm being...

Worst hostel ever! My bed was totally dirty but they insured that the bed lines are clean. But it was obvious not? Bathroom was also disgusting and i think nobody cleans it ever. There were hair all over the floor and other dirt. Also the garbsge bin was totally full and over 2 nights i stayed there it gets even... More

There are some pretty harsh reviews for this place but in defence of the lady who runs the hostel, she's not that bad. She's very direct, perhaps blunt at times but she was never un courteous towards us. Just try not to be a grouchy tourist and you won't have a problem. Awesome wifi, I took full advantage of to...

Didn't expect much since this is intentionally for backpacking trips. Common bathroom but didn't mind. . It was a good location (near the train, restos etc) In defense of Valerie(the landlady), she really is a nice person. Straightforward, yeah but not rude. Will probably stay here again.

It is such a pretty well-located, very near MRT station, just 1-2 mins from hostel to MRT. And also, its price is good (difficult to find such cheap price like that), but of course, everything is basic. Toilet and bathroom is a bit bad. Ms proprietor is very practical and a bit prissy. I said that I want to borrow... More

This has been the single worst accomodation experience I've ever had. We booked 2 nights on booking.com and chose it because of the price, $15 each a night for a 6 bed dorm with air con. When we arrived reception was empty and we waited an hour and a half for the woman to roll out of bed, litterally a... More

We stayed two nights at Urban Hostel, upon arrival we had to wait almost 2 hours just to see if we could store luggage and confirm check-in time, because the receptionist got out of bed late. The dorm was ok, what we expected for the price, with good air con, the bathrooms and other areas were revolting. The biggest problem... More
